86949-5Trichomonas vaginalis and Mycoplasma genitalium DNA panel - SpecimenActive

Term Description

The test is used for the detection and differentiation of Trichomonas vaginalis and Mycoplasma genitalium. This panel was created based on, but not limited to, Roche's cobas TV/MG assay. Common clinical specimens for this test include first void urine, vaginal and endocervical swabs or metal swabs in both symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals.

Part Descriptions

LP262580-6   Trichomonas vaginalis & Mycoplasma genitalium DNA panel
Mycoplasma genitalium is a bacteria species of Genus Mycoplasma and associated with infections of the genitourinary tract, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), endometritis, arthritis and cervicitis. Identification and differentiation is traditionally achieved by serological methods. Recently, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is used for rapid detection and differentiation of bacterial species such as M. genitalium. [PMID 21304192] Source: Regenstrief LOINC, PMID: 21304192

LP262580-6   Trichomonas vaginalis & Mycoplasma genitalium DNA panel
Trichomonas vaginalis (TV) is an anaerobic, flagellated parasitic protozoan that is among the most common non-viral sexually transmitted organisms whose only known host is humans. It is estimated that 170 million new cases occur worldwide and it is the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the United States. TV is known to increase HIV acquisition and transmission in both men and women by acting as a cofactor to increase susceptibility to HIV of an uninfected partner and infectivity of HIV of an infected partner. In women, infection with TV is a possible risk factor for developing cervical neoplasia, post-operative infections, adverse pregnancy outcomes, atypical pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility. In men, infection with TV can lead to non-gonococcal urethritis, infertility, chronic prostatitis and decreased sperm motility. Diagnosis is most often made using wet mount microscopy which has a sensitivity of only 52%. Other diagnostic methods include Pap smear, culture and PCR with sensitivities of 56%, 78% and 84%, respectively. There is an estimated 5 million new cases of TV annually in the United States and yet TV is still not a reportable disease. Treatment for TV is with metronidazole though emerging metronidazole-resistant strains have been reported. Asymptomatic infection can persist for months to years.
